Howard University & The University of Delaware Marching Bands To Serve As Biden-Harris Escorts During The Inauguration

We are literally hours away from Inauguration Day and there are so many people nationwide that are preparing for the historic moment. With the countdown already underway, it has been announced that Howard University’s marching band, the Showtime Marching Band, and The University of Delaware’s marching band, the Fightin’ Blue Hen Marching Band, will be on hand tomorrow to serve as escorts for both Kamala Harris and Joe Biden.

As many of you know Kamala is an alumnus of Howard University and Joe Biden is an alumnus of the University of Delaware.

Howard University’s President Wayne A.I. Frederick said, “It is our esteemed honor to be involved in the historic inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. Throughout her career, the vice president-elect has carried her Howard education with her, ensuring that she adhere to truth and service and inspiring her to achieve unprecedented levels of excellence.”

He continued, “It is perfectly fitting that the Showtime Marching Band, the ensemble that captures and reverberates the heartbeat of our institution, should accompany her on this last leg of her journey to the White House. It was that steady pulse of her Alma Mater’s legacy that propelled her forward, and it is that same rhythm that will carry her onward as she undoubtedly will become one of the most influential vice presidents in the history of our nation.”

The University of Delaware’s Fightin’ Blue Hen Marching Band will escort Joe Biden after he is officially sworn in during the inauguration.

The university’s President Dennis Assani said, “It is a tremendous honor for the University of Delaware Marching Band Drumline Battery to be one of only two civilian groups participating in the inaugural events in person on Wednesday. We are excited to share our UD pride with the world, and we will all be cheering on our students as they help celebrate this amazing milestone for a fellow Blue Hen.”
